No matter what role you take on, volunteering for the hospice will mean you’ll be helping to support local people affected by life-limiting illnesses.
Although many of our volunteers are in our shops or our warehouse, helping us to raise much-needed funds to provide our care and support, we do also have some voluntary roles within the hospice.
At our headquarters in Jackson-Barstow House, we take pride in providing a warm, welcoming environment. Helpful volunteers greet visitors and patients at reception, answer queries over the phone, arrange flowers, help keep common areas tidy and more. We also have a team of companions and other bereavement or chaplaincy volunteers, who undergo special training to provide emotional support to patients and their loved ones.
We take extra precautions to make sure our patients are receiving the highest quality end-of-life care, so if you’re interested in a voluntary role that involves patient care and support, we’ll ask you to undergo extra checks.
Whatever your skills, there’s a volunteering role for you at the hospice.
If there aren’t any roles within the hospice that suit you, you might like to look into volunteering in our shops or our warehouse.
